By signing below you are showing support for the professional pay for professional work campaign and will receive updates! 

The overarching goal of this campaign is to address the long-standing issue of low and inequitable compensation for early childhood educators (ECEs) in Ontario. We are calling on the government to fund professional pay for all ECEs in Ontario regardless of where they work. Professional pay should reflect ECEs’ specialized training, the value of their work and their participation in continuous professional learning.

No ECE should have to work for less than a professional wage and all ECEs should be recognized for their professional qualifications and practice.

For more information on the campaign please see http://www.aeceo.ca/professional_pay_for_professional_work

    I am starting a staffing agency in Toronto which will specialize in child care placements. We will pay our qualified ECE, Teacher assistants, etc a professional wage. You are professionals and should be paid well like any other professional.

    I’m a Registered Early Childhood Educator. I work full time and barely can pay my household bills, this is really making me to consider give up this career and look for something else. It is sad, I have to give up a career I love so much for a job that pay the rent…

    I think its time for a change and as a society we need to do something about.

    I can’t believe the amount of signatures, I mean it’s great but the last time in checked to see how many there were it was 2,832, so there’s no improvement. It’s been a while since I checked and I’m shocked that there aren’t more by now. Seriously sign the petition, there should be more than 10,000 ECE’S that want this change to take place. ECE’S deserve professional pay so if anyone believe that then they should sign.
